Subject: Calling all chocoholics...
From: Liz the Squeak
Date: 06 Jan 00 - 11:09 AM

As I got more than 2kg of chocolate for Christmas, it really is about time I added more chocolatey songs to my repertoire. Any one know any?

There is one called 'When you're down, the best way up is chocolate', but I can't remember who wrote it, or where I can get it from. I'd just like to hear any songs about the delicious brown stuff.....

Subject: Lyr Add: ICH WILL KEINE SCHOKOLADE
From: Wolfgang
Date: 06 Jan 00 - 11:24 AM

link to Ich will keine Schokolade, ich will lieber einen Mann (I don't want chocolate I'd rather have a man). Sorry, I don't know whether there's an English version of that "beautie".

Wolfgang

ICH WILL KEINE SCHOKOLADE
Ich lebe unerhört solide und habe nie ein Rendez-vous,
Ich gehe höchstens mit den Eltern ein Stück spazieren ab und zu.
Mein Vater sagt, so muß das bleiben,
und dafür schenkt er mir Konfekt,
doch neulich platzte mir der Kragen,
weil mir Konfekt nun mal nicht schmeckt.

Ich will keine Schokolade, ich will lieber einen Mann!
Ich will einen, der mich küssen und um den Finger wickeln kann!

Ich hatte neulich g'rad' Geburtstag, und diesen Tag vergess' ich nie.
denn alle Tanten und Verwandten, die waren mit von der Partie,
Sie brachten Rosen und Narzissen, und Schokolade zentnerschwer,
Da hat's mich plötzlich fortgerissen,
ich schrie "Ich will das Zeug nicht mehr!"

Ich will keine Schokolade...

Ich kaufte Sonntag auf dem Rummel für 20 Pfennig mir ein Los,
ich hab' auch wirklich 'was gewonnen,
doch die Enttäuschung, die war groß,
Denn ich gewann dort einen Teddy aus Schokolad' und Marzipan,
Den schmiß ich wütend in die Menge,
und schrie den Losverkäufer an:

Ich will keine Schokolade...

Ich will einen, der mich küssen und um den Finger wickeln kann!

(Schlager von Trude Herr, 1959)
The link cited above, so I copy-pasted the lyrics from www.findlyrics.com.

Life consists of getting fatter!
So grab your forks and pass the platter,
While we are together!

Let all our food be served with wine!
We'll show them how it is to dine,
we'll end each meal with CHOCOLATE!

Wolfgang-I love that-"I don't want chocolate; I'd rather have a man!" It's only partly true-I would say, If I can't have a man, give me some chocolate in consolation. There is a line of Marge Piercy's poetry that combines these loves: "I am chocolate, melting into you".

So Liz, how about sharing the wealth? I like dark chocolate far and away the best! Just crank up your modem on high, and send it on through the cables! Better turn the temperature to low, though-melted chocolate makes an awful mess!

The Newfoundland musical-comedians Buddy Whats-His-Name and the Other Fellers have (among other hilarities) a song with the punch line "You need some chocolate, some creamy chocolate..." I don't know where to find the lyrics & music

These guys are so goofy in their publicity I always thought they must be incedibly corny...when I finally heard them they turned out to have a repertoire of really funny, genuine rather than tourist-trap Newfoundland humourous dialogues, and rather poignant and well-played trad-style music.

There was a thread a couple months ago about Joanne Davis, who wrote two songs about chocolate, of which one (the one I learned first) starts Does the voice of Tom Carvel cause you to pant?
Do you want a second helping, though you shouldn't (and you can't?
Would you lick the coating of a chocolate covered ant?
You're a chocoholic too!

Is the reference to Tom Carvel localized to this (western) side of the Atlantic, or is he universal? Should I post the rest of this song?

LIz the rest of that chorus is When you're feeling down, the best way up is chocolate It will get you through a long ,hard, dreary day Let me get my teeth around something small and square and brown And I'll masticate until I feel okay

I suspect it was written by Moira Austen herself.She can be found at the Maidenhead Folk Club.

Hm,
I know of a song written by a mandolin player in Vancouver named Zeke Hoskins, with a chorus that goes...

"I love chocolate I love you
I hope you'll never prove untrue
But I'll have chocolate if you do
I can count on chocolate"

The name of the album is called something like "Life Is Strange". It was covered by a group in Vancouver,(more folk mafia) called Three Strong Winds. It's in my music collection which I don't have access to, but a mudcatter in Vancouver may be able to track it down. I really should learn it.
Hope it helps.
Cheers.

I can live without chocolate in the house but when it's there and opened....
When I was small I remember mixing dry drinking chocolate and sugar on a saucer and eating it with a spoon (well, I was a war baby so probably reacting against rationing!) and I still have no dentures or fillings and only lack one and a half teeth (which I attribute to never going to a dentist!).
But I can't bring any songs to mind at the moment except the Slough National Anthem: "Mars, he's making eyes at me".

From: Gervase
Date: 20 Jul 01 - 05:57 AM

"ere 'tis - Moira's Chocolate song...

THE CHOCOLATE SONG

When you're tired and depressed and feeling lonely,
When your chequebook's in the red and you feel blue;
When you're sad the pubs aren't open or your rubber band is broken,
Or you drop the toilet paper down the loo.
When you're feeling such an urge to wash the steak knives,
Or to sniff at the exhaust pipe of your car;
Or to farewell all your friends and take a nap inside the oven,
Stop! Salvation's just a suck from where you are.

When you're feeling down the best way up is chocolate,
It's the answer that will get you through the day.
Let me get my teeth around something small and square and round
And I'll masticate until I feel OK.

Now when God had finished making all the heavens,
And the mountains and the valleys and the seas,
And the weather and the weevils, and the squid and German measles,
And the gherkins and the cockles and the fleas,
On the seventh day when He was sitting resting;
He was feeling in a very chipper mood.
then came one last inspiration for one final last creation;
Something fit to please a god that could be chewed.

Whjen I see a bar of chocolate lying idle
It always seems to find its way inside my jaws.
It tastes better in than out, it's a shame to mess about,
for it's going to a very worthy cause.
And although it won'd endear me to my dentist
And my doctor will be fearful for my health,
And it's given me a skinful of enormous oily pimples,
I'm still feeling very good about myself.

Here's Zeke's song, LTS, need a tune, too?

THE CHOCOLATE SONG
(Zeke Hoskin 1990)

Father never seemed to make
Enough to feed his children steak
But Mom turned out that chocolate cake;
Chocolate made my childhood.

CHORUS:
I love chocolate, I love you,
I hope you never prove untrue;
But I'll have chocolate if you do -
I can count on chocolate.

Chocolate is so action packed,
Makes some children hyperact;
Too much speed is what I lack -
Grownups need more chocolate.

Dogs love chocolate, don't know why;
Speeds their hearts up till they die.
Vet bill's gonna make you cry:
Don't let dogs have chocolate.

How d'ya know that Easter's here?
Chocolate bunnies do appear.
If Christ had risen twice that year
We could have more chocolate.

Some say growing old's the pits,
Balding heads and sagging hips [tits]
But chocolate doesn't give you zits:
I'll trade my youth for chocolate.

Careless love can break your heart,
God knows smoking isn't smart,
Too much beer can make you ... fat:
Nothing's safe but chocolate.

If your husband's strength is spent,
His get up and go has went;
Chocolate straightens what is bent -
Feed your husband chocolate.

If your waist band's getting tight,
Dieting is out of sight;
Try this curb for appetite:
Preceed each meal with chocolate.

Some of you may think this song
Is short on meaning and too damn long;
I'm not going to say you're wrong.
Let's go have some chocolate.

"Moira Craig's" Chocolate song was in fact written by Marcus Turner, and there are 2 more verses than Gervase has posted (except that Moira only sings one of them):

CHOCOLATE SONG
Marcus Turner

When you're tired and depressed and feeling lonely
When your cheque book's in the red and you are blue
When you've left the freezer open or your rubber band has broken
Or you've dropped the toilet paper down the loo
When you feel a sudden urge to wash the steak knife
Or to sniff at the exhaust pipe of your car
Or to farewell those you love, and take a nap inside the oven
Stop! Salvation's just a suck from where you are.

CHORUS:
When you're feeling down the best way up is chocolate
It's the answer that will get you through the day
Let me get my teeth around something small and square and brown
And I'll masticate until I feel OK!

Now when God had finished making all the heavens
And the valleys and the mountains and the seas
And the weather and the weevils and the squid and German measles
And the gherkins, then cocoa and all the fleas
On the seventh day as he was sitting resting
He was feeling in a very chipper mood
There came one more inspiration, for one last divine creation
Something fit to please a God that could be chewed

When I see a bar of chocolate lying idle
It always seems to find it's way inside my jaws
It tastes better in than out, and it's a shame to mess about
Cos it's going to a very worthy cause
And although it won't endear me to my dentist
And my doctor will be worried for my health
And it's given me a skinful of enormous oily pimples
I'm still feeling very good about myself

(Moira doesn't sing next verse:)
Just remember if it's chocolate you can eat it
Chocolate eggs and chocolate fish and chocolate chips
Chocolate cake and mousse and logs
Chocolate snails and mice and frogs
Let a chocolate form explode across your lips
Some is crunchy and is filled with hokey cokey
Some is thrown about by cowboys and is white
There's a whole world out there waiting, don't just sit there salivating
Pull your socks up, chocks away and bite, bite, bite

You can never have a bad trip eating chocolate
And it's tastier than sex and much more fun
Keep your pills and dope and glue, and your gin and whiskey too
Cos there's no buzz like a chocolate buzz bar none
If you really really love me give me chocolate
Give me chocolate till it's coming out my ears
All I crave is just enough, so I can intimately* stuff - myself
for years and years and years and years and years.

* As provided by Malcolm Austen, but as far as I can recall, Moira sings " passionately stuff"

Lyrics copied from http://www.smoe.org/lists/ecto/Volume01/April_94/Digest.1088

CHOCOLATE
The Chenille Sisters/Mary Stribling

Chocolate is great. Chocolate is grand.
Melts in your mouth. Melts in your hand.
Chocolate is love. Mm-mm-mm-mm-mm.

Chocolate is hip. Chocolate is now.
Beans from Brazil, milk from the cow.
Chocolate is love. Mm-mm-mm-mm-mm.

Please don't mention
The chemical connection
Chocolate makes in my head.
It's Swiss Miss I'm drinkin'
Eatin' Hershey bars and thinkin'
If I can't be in love, I'll have a truffle instead.

Cocoa is warm. Fudgsicles chill.
Whatever the form, it's always a thrill.
Chocolate is love. Mm-mm-mm-mm-mm.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen,
Chocolate is a big part of our lives
And we would like to share with you now
Our testimonials in hopes that each
And every one of you will accept
Chocolate into your lives.

At night, I dream of hot fudge on ice cream.
Snickers are fine, Milk Duds divine.
Häagen-Dazs Chocolate Chocolate Chip is a trip.
I couldn't survive-a without my Godiva.
I eat a Chunky when I feel funky.
A tollhouse cookie is better than nookie.
N-E-S-T-L-E-S, Nestlés makes the very best.
Chocolate is love. Mm-mm-mm-mm-mm.

[Recorded by The Chenille Sisters on "Mama, I Wanna Make Rhythm," Red House, 1999.]

Give me chocolate 'til it's coming out my ears

I am surprised that no one has mentioned one popularized by The Smothers Brothers many years ago, one which begins with this line:

  I fell into a vat of chocolate

Not surprisingly, I suppose, the various references to that line found by Googling the web disagree about the subsequent lines. However, there's a longer-than-most version as the last posting on this page. The writer of the posting, unable to locate the recording, reconstructed the song from memory, but the level of detail suggests that his memory might be quite accurate.

Yes, Koro Neil, Jacko pointed that out in his earlier post to this thread on 8 September 2003. I have to point out when I sing this song that it was written by a man (as I did when I sang it at the Herga folk club last night). Craving indolence rather than passion seems a bit of an oxymoron?

No one has posted Bill Steele's?? My... (I think it's in the database, but search isn't working right now...you can find these lyrics several places)


Chocolate Chip Cookies^^^

Chorus:

Chocolate chip cookies, you gotta have more
You can bake 'em in the oven, or buy 'em at the store
But whatever you do, have 'em ready at my door
And I'll love ya till I die.

They're made out of sugar and butter and flour
You put 'em in the oven about a quarter hour,
But the thing that gives them their magic power
Is the chocolate chips inside.

You can't eat one, you can't eat two
Once you start chewing, there's nothing to do
But clean your plate, and eat the crumbs too
Then go and find some more.

Now when I die, I don't want wings
A golden halo or a harp that sings
Give me a book, a fire, and someone that brings me
Chocolate chip cookies all day.
^^^

Here is Zeke Hoskin, along with Flip Breskin, singing I Love Chocolate at a house concert in Beaverton, Oregon a couple years ago.

For the "definitive" version of the Smothers Brothers' chocolate song, they appear on their "Live at the Purple Onion" album.
Lolly too dum, lolly too dum day.

Well I wasn't familiar with many of the chocolate songs mentioned but just had to reply to this topic! I am a chocoholic. Not an alcoholic and never been into heavy drinking, never been addicted to any drugs or cigarettes. Never been addicted to gambling. Not even addicted to having to be on a cell phone or look constantly at the cell phone. (they say the average person checks their Smart phone or cell phone about 34 time a day.) Wow!
Not my thing either. I look at a cell phone once a day and sometimes not at all - yes it is true - not addicted to texting either. Never do it! Not into texting at all. Not into staring at a Smart phone all day like many people, checking this, checking that. Not my thing at all. Don't even own a Smart Phone.
What's my point in mentioning all those things?

Well... it is because I am a chocoholic, yes, yes, yes!! Chocolate icecream, cake, fudge brownies especially, chocolate chip cookies, chocolate pudding, Hershey bars, yum, yum, yum. :-)))) I LOVE CHOCOLATE!!!! Yes, I am being a bit silly here I know.
But all you chocoholics will understand.
I do otherwise eat healthy foods though.

Marcus' Chocolate song

Marcus uses the postscript line
'And I'll masticate my miseries away.'
It's on his CD 'Laid Down.' Well worth buying. If you like The Chocolate Song you'll probably like 'Spider in the Bath' and 'When The Boys Are On Parade' too, but all the songs on the CD were written by him, and they are all thoughtful. Or thought-provoking.
An infuriatingly talented, multi-instrumental artist.
